Cruise Liner Attacked              Sun Jul 02    GNN
"GNN England, reporting live."

"A cruise liner from England to New York was brought under attack today at 2PM 
as Maverick Quickdart Hummingbird attempted to sink it. Responding to apparent 
arguments on the global broadband frequency, he launched at the liner with 
Maverick drones and corrosive missiles, causing the ship to take on water. 
English Defense Force ships succesfully evacuated the liner, while Scitech 
Chief of Security Eugene Chaud engaged the Maverick in his Muramasa Power 
Armour. Despite the Maverick's attempts to drain his energy and attack his 
eyes, Mr. Chaud dispatched the Maverick with his fancy swordplay and secured 
the patrons and crew of the liner's freedom."

Brooklyn Traffic                   Sun Jul 02    GNN
You heard it first on GNN news!

         Yesterday, late night, a robot master known as Color Man assaulted 7th 
avenue Brooklyn. The owner of a Stereo 4 U shop was assaulted, via pie, and 
was later rescued with mild injuries by the hunter, Riot, who was also 
present. While he was seeing to the man to safety, there were some unfortunate 
other happenings as well.

         The whole, or at least a chunk of land was covered within ever 
changing colors, the traffic lights overridden somehow to cause all lights to 
be green, and the carnage that came from the many vehicular incidents brought 
on by Brooklyn traffic. 

         The robot master was fought off by Repliforcer Munitions Ifrit who 
thoroughly demolished Color Man, as those who were present say. He 
successfully escaped as well. The carnage that was created produced a quick 
and potent response by the Greymalkin Arsenal, and especially one member of 
them which had dealt with odd drones which were causing the blunt of the 
damage while the robot master was distracted.

         No fatalities were recorded although there were a few seriously 
injured. Water damage and fire hazards as well as the remains of the cars have 
been mostly repaired/being repaired at this time. It was a successful day for 
the defenders of these, normally, peaceful streets.

Robot Master Butter Supply Routed! Mon Jul 03    GNN

        "Ahem. Today, our top story of the night, or should I say early morning 
story, the Maverick Hunters, Axl, Cinnamon, and Steel Massimo had attacked a 
Butter Factory in Wisconsin which belonged to none other than the man of the 
Robot Masters, Dr. Wily! Shortly after the Maverick Hunters had entered, Robot 
Masters came in every fashion, from the sky to taking a car to the purging of 
Dr. Wily. 

        As soon as the Robot Masters had arrived, the fight had begun, butter 
had started to seep out from the vats under siege, causing the entire factory 
to be a slippery death trap for all inside. In horrible twist, the Maverick 
Hunters, giving it all they had, were defeated, even as Axl had used the form 
of Lumine. However, it wasn't a total loss, as the butter factory had been 
terribly damaged, keeping the evil Dr. Wily from buttering his toast. 

        As well, the Hunters had been delivered back to the Tower Of Light in a 
vat full of butter, courtesy apparently provided by the Robot Masters.

A decline in daily attacks from Robot Masters and Mavericks have caused the 
Australian government to issue a formal warning to its citizens that a 
"massive, wide-scale attack" may be imminent. Shortages of essential goods are

"Who knows what he might be planning?"


A wave of speculation has recently affected the markets of colored gems, such

dismissed the speculation as a hiccup in an otherwise stabilizing world

Deer Season                        Sat Jul 08    GNN
<In the GNN Style section.> 
AP - A new fashion sensation is quickly picking up speed across the globe under 
the trademark 'Deer Season', allegedly the product of some of the greatest 
minds of the Irregular movement. With a strongly political message and a 
distinct, unique sense of flair, the 'Deer Season' line is already receiving 
plenty of attention at the cutting edge of fashion. 
Thought to have originated on the streets of New York City, the 'Deer Season' 
line of shirts features a provocatively negative message against former 
musician and current self-admitted member of the Coalition for Reploid Freedom 
Fianait, currently number six on the World's Top Ten Most Wanted list. 
Coming primarily in green and white, the shirts offer such messages as 'I Was 
Betrayed By Javelin Whitetail and All I Got Was This Stupid Shirt', 'Warning: 
Fianait Is Known To Attack From Behind', and simply 'Deer Season', accompanied 
by an assortment of graphics featuring the composer in the crosshairs.
Profits from the sale of this line of clothing reportedly go to a foundation 
that openly supports the Irregular cause. Neither party involved was available 
for comment at the time of writing.

Atlantis Attacked                  Sat Jul 08    GNN
Standard GNN report. A random newcaster offers the following, the content 
staying mostly the same, usually the one giving the lines the biggest change. 
 "Last night, Robot Masters attacked the underwater city of Atlantis today. 
According to comments by Jet Stingray himself and released Repliforce reports, 
they attacked the buildings in the area in order to draw out Repliforce units, 
which responded to stop the attack. Causalities are reported to be few, if 
any, and no tourists have been reported injuried or killed. When asked to 
comment on the matter, Jet had this to say on the matter." 
 Jet is shown with a lot of mikes and cameras about him as he speaks. "I am 
P.O.ed with the Robot Masters right now. Atlantis is a place where there 
should be no fighting, be no war. I would have been willing to let them in as 
long as they promised to be peaceful and cool, but it's clear that they do not 
understand what it means to chill. Until Wily pays for damages as well as a 
five thousand zenny service charge, the Robot Masters will not be allowed 
freely into Atlantis at any time. If they want a piece of myself, leave 
Atlantis out out of it... This time, they were let off easy. I promise next 
time that security will be more than tripled in the days to come, as I promise 
to have Atlantis as a safe place for all to enjoy." 
 The camera goes back to the newscaster. "...It is unsure exactly how much 
damage the Robot Masters caused, but considering that there were four to five 
Robot Masters on the scene, it is assumed to be in the tens of thousands if 
not more."

        The inestigation into a a brawl that broke out in a local London casino 
between members of the Maverick Coalition and Dr. Wily's Robot Masters 
continues. Initial information suggests that the fight started when one Crush 
Crawfish broke through the casino and, with the help of the infamous Maverick 
criminal Vile, began attacking the Robot Masters. Reports are still sketchy, 
however the Coalition has stated that they E-Ringed Colour Man and 'nearly 
destroyed Shadow Man and Cut Man'. These last two are not supported by 
evidence, however, and thus is complete BS. A Coalition spokesmech added that 
this was in revenge for a Robot Master attack in Able City nearly a month ago. 
There have also been reports suggesting that the casino was a secret Robot 
Master base, however this is unconfirmed at this time.

Giga City attacked!                Tue Jul 11    GNN
<This is GNN!>

Earlier tonight, local defense forces sighted a small skull shuttle descending 
and landing in the main concourse of Giga City, evading detection by perimeter 
defense. Among those that disembarked the shuttle was four small squads of 
mets and joes and Robot Masters Gyro Man and Sword Man.

The deployed drones from the shuttle quickly locked down the central tower's 
teleportation hub and roadblocked the city's own defense forces from entering 
the concourse. However, the Irregular reploid Scarface managed to slip through 
the blockades and proceeded to attack the Master's shuttle. He was quickly 
engaged by Gyro Man while Sword Man chased out citizens from the local stores 
and factories on that block.

According to reports, Scarface managed to easily force Gyro Man into retreat, 
and the master was reported to be missing an arm as he fled. Unfortunately, 
Sword Man was apparently forced to return to the central concourse where he 
started attacking the local hero.

Reports from eyewitnesses state that the match seemed even with Scarface 
maintaining a slight edge, keeping the Robot Master very slightly off balance 
as they traded blows. But then in an unexpected turn of events, eyewitnesses 
report seeing Sword Man engaging his ill-gotten force metal enhancements while 
Scarface was using one of the Master's own arms to hit him in the face. After 
that point, the battle turned very quickly against the Irregular hero, with 
the Force Master weathering a deadly assault that would have dropped almost 
eny normal reploid to their knees or force them to retreat. Further, it 
appeared that his wounds from the assault had healed themselves in a matter of 
seconds. The Force master then launched his own brutal assaults against the 
Irregular hero, first pounding the local hero and disarming him with what is 
best described as an all out barrage of flaming punches, then finally 
defeating the Irregular warrior with his signature Flame Sword after 
deflecting an attepted counterattack.

Local authorities in the area were able to deactivate the blockading drones and 
send their forces into the area, but were unable to prevent the Master from 
escaping in the shuttle. Initial estimates of damage are low, however a 
sizeable amount of indutrial materials and consumer electronics were stolen, 
estimated to be worth over fifty thousand zenny. Lastly, over fifty posters 
bearing depictions of Albert Wily were destroyed or defaced and replaced by 
posters of the mad scientist in poses and clothes that only the madman himself 
would consider flattering and pleasant to look at.

The City Concourse of giga City is currently under lockdown while cleanup and 
repairs are performed. No injuries were reported and the only casualty of the 
conflict is Scarface who, in an injury assesment, was only injured just enough 
to force his systems to deactivate, not destroy him. This could be considered 
an act of mercy on the Fire Knight's part, but his motivations are unknown. It 
also is unknown what the Robot Masters and Wily would need such suplies for. 
The investigation is ongoing.

Gravity Beetle and a squad of Maverick Regulars, struck a munitions factory 
several miles outside of Detroit. Singularity Shrike was struck down in 
personal combat with Attila, and Gravity Beetle was forced to flee from 
Munitions Ifrit. Attila briefly engaged Munitions Ifrit, before retreating 
with his ill-gotten goods."
